Rogue knitters encamped along the Berkeley-Oakland border with lawn chairs, tea cakes and knitting projects to protest the city of Berkeley's order that they remove an 8-foot knitted tea cozy they sewed over the T in a public sculpture they believe insults Oakland.

Yah, haha! While I was completing my studies at Berkeley I lived in Oakland. I have a great fondness for both places. When I was there it was all here to me. Love the knitters.

Ooh, I like those knitters. What a great way to criticize a divisive public sculpture without actually defacing it. I hope they get to leave it up.
